Does anyone know the colour of the gun carriages the Brunswickers used for their battalion guns in the SYW? Apparently these were the only guns they fielded. I have relied Kronoscaf and Not by Appointment, but to no avail. Can anyone help please?
Ok, I open the said book, Chapter 7 Duchy of Brunswick.
Unfortunately, it doesn't mention anything about carriage colour.
I just transfer some related info:
p.61 "The uniforms, organization, drill and tactics were modelled on those of Prussia"...
"In 1746 the artillery had four companies. During the War of the Austrian Succession (1740-1748), one company was part of the contingent of Brunswick (4800 men) subsidized by England.
In 1757, there were three companies with some 272 men, serving 14 pieces (six 3-pounder guns, two howitzers, six 2-pounder guns). In 1760 the unit was increased to 320 men. This regiment included the engineers. The uniform was a dark blue coat, red facings lining and waistcoat, yellow buttons."
Searched elsewhere on the web, didn't find something of more help.
Perhaps you are aware of this excellent blog "My Seven Years War"
